Rob -

Thanks for the link to Rock Island Plow Company - these guys are really good.

Anything by Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper (not in the Archive)

I forget which CD has the tune but his version of Lee Highway Blues will leave you stunned. If a magic genie showed up and offered me a million dollars or the ability to play like Michael Cleveland..........

Try this video out, scroll down to left side of the page and look for the link to the video of him Live in Chicago 2007.!/pages/Michael-Cleveland/9154242098

Newer Groups:
The Farewell Drifters (superb harmonies)
Mountain Heart (Wide Open - amazing picking)
Balsam Range (classic, bunch of guys standing around a condenser mic)

Rick - I've just had a look at the Michael Cleveland clip. Absolutely astonishing! If I'd just been listening and not watching too I'd have sworn there were two guys playing. Many thanks for this introduction.

I agree the Rock Island Plow Company is the real deal - old timey bluegrass. I love the laid back audience on this recording.
